Cvx_begin error with cluster

(Weiwen Tian) #1

Hi! I am running some matlab script on HPC clusters (Stanford’s Sherlock). I get this error message

Dot indexing is not supported for variables of this type.

Error in cvx_global (line 76)
osolvers = cvx___.solvers.list;

Error in cvxprob (line 4)

Error in cvx_begin (line 41)
assignin( ‘caller’, ‘cvx_problem’, cvxprob( varargin{:} ) );

Error in MC (line 15)

My script runs perfectly on my own laptop (the script contains a line that runs cvxstartup.m at the top), and on login nodes on the HPC cluster. This problem only appears when I try to run it on compute nodes. Would really appreciate any help on how to troubleshoot this.

Are sure cvx can be run on cluster like that?

Unless cvx says explicit it can I would assume it cannot be done.
